Day 38. We were away yesterday in a lovely spot that had patchy internet connection, so I'm posting yesterday's read Demolition a little late. This book, like Good Night, Good Night Construction Site is a fun take on heavy machinery and industry for kids. It combines rhyming narrative with onomatopoeic sounds on every double page spread. Master A's dad, who read this, pointed out it's reasonably accurate, and it show both male and female demolition works. Three cheers for gender representation. I note the author has also written one on Roadwork and one on Construction, and I'd give them both a go. Another NZ author winning at kids books.
Master A's verdict: Enjoyed both pictures and sounds.
